Ensoniq VFX Dynamic Component Synthesis Polyphonic Synthesiser
Produced in 1989, the VFX followed up from the SQ-80 and and ESQ-1. The VFX added more polyphony and waveforms. It allowed for the PPG-like synthesis putting it into unique class of digital synthesizers along with the PPG Wave series, Waldorf Microwave series, and Ensoniq, SQ-80, ESQ-1, and Fizmo.
The VFX has 21 voices and a single patch can contain up to 6 different waveforms that can be combined and layered. It also features Advanced and analog-like synth parameters including its dual multi-mode digital filters, three 11-stage envelopes, LFO, and 15 modulation sources allow you to further shape and morph your sounds. There's even a built-in 24-bit VLSI dual effects processor with reverb, chorus, flanging, and delay as well as full MIDI implementation. (Vintage Synth Explorer)
- This is a used unit.
- Physically this unit is in good condition for its age. It shows some general wear like nicks and scratches from use over the years. Mostly on the sides. The keys have started to yellow and a small amount of text has rubbed off the front panel. There is nothing major at all, nor anything which detracts from the sounds or functions of this synthesiser. Please see all photos for further details.
All keys, potentiometers and switches are functioning as they should. It sounds great and is a pleasure to use.
